We experimentally examine the equivalence between the entropy production evaluated from irreversibility of trajectories and the physical dissipation in dissipative processes via electric resistor-capacitor (RC) circuits. The examinations are performed for two nonequilibrium steady states that are driven by an injected current and temperature difference, respectively. Such an equivalence demonstrates a parameter-free method to evaluate the entropy production of a system. The effects of configurational and temporal resolutions are also studied.
